Port Charlotte OLC:01 2010 heavily Peated 70cl 55.1%

 

Another peated Port Charlotte expression from Bruichladdich, released as part of the Cask Exploration series. OLC: 01 was distilled in 2010, and rested in a combination of bourbon, Syrah and vin doux naturel casks. In 2019, it was transferred to Oloroso sherry hogsheads for the final 18 months of ageing. Resulting in a very complex balance of dried fruit sweetness, oily nuts and citrus is to be found among the fragrant peat smoke.

What the distillery say:

Fashion and circumstance in the 21st century have conspired against the trade of genuine sherry casks. they are now very rare and expensive, the marketplace flooded with modern imitations. developing a direct relationship with a reputable bodega is the only way to secure a steady supply of the genuine articles. the partnership between our distillery and Jan Pettersen’s Fernando De Castilla is one such example. it is this mutual understanding between craftsmen that has allowed our port charlotte spirit, distilled in 2010, to eventually meet a stand-out parcel of Jerez’ finest oloroso hogsheads. originally matured in a complex blend of bourbon, vin doux naturel and syrah casks, this heavily peated single malt has spent the final 18 months of its life in those genuine oloroso hogsheads. dry earthy peat smoke with roasted coffee, lime and figs. chocolate and vanilla come through as the peat embers give a last hint of smoke.
